Croeso i Blwyddyn 2 – Welcome to Year 2
Autumn Term 2
After half term, we start our new topic – Destination Outer Space. We are really looking forward to explore space with the children and have some exciting learning opportunities up our sleeves.
Here is our topic Web for the second half the Autumn term.
Please read below about homework for this term, where to find it and how to submit it.
Autumn term 1
The first part of the Autumn term has been taken up with our Topic Sensational Safari. The children (as always) have been amazing and have been working their socks off. They have produced some fantastic pieces of work and we are super proud of them!
This is a link to a Topic Web of activities that we hope to cover in the Autumn term.
The children have been very busy completing activities in their Mission station areas in class. The children have a fortnight to complete the activities and they record what they have done in their books, on Seesaw or on J2E using the ipads.
Topic related homework, is available on J2E on Hwb. All activities are shared in Shared Files but each task is also shown in the Homework section of J2E. An queries accessing them please send me a message.
Please note all homework for the second part of Autumn term is due in by the 17th December. This is to give you flexibility to complete it when you can. Please submit them when they are done so we can celebrate the work in class by sharing it with everyone.
Spelling test are on a Friday. Spellling words will be posted on J2E every week. Please access them there. Any issues accessing this please let me know. Please note each child has a document on J2E where you can access their spelling results.
The children will bring a spelling practise book home, keep this at home, it does not need to return to school.
Reading books need to come in on Mondays and will be returned on Thursdays. This is to allow 72 hours between contact. We will listen to the children read individually as well as guided reading sessions too. We aim to listen to them read as often as possible.
It is really important that you help us by sending in their reading books on their reading day. Can we emphasise the importance of reading to and with your child as often as possible (at least 4 times a week).
The children will have 1 PE session a week, on a Wednesday morning. Can you please can they come into school dressed for PE.
Please can each child have their own water bottle. We will not be having cups in class for them to use due to health and hygiene reasons.
Thank you for your support, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to discuss anything.
Mrs Davies and Mrs Bowen.
